We take you through a few simple steps after which your favorite piece of clothing will take on the original form.
How To Unshrink Your Clothes
For this trick, you will need:
- One bowl filled with lukewarm almost cold water
- Fabric softener, baby shampoo or hair conditioner
- A large flat plate or board
In the bowl filled with water add a little bit of the softener (baby shampoo or hair conditioner) and mix the ingredient with your hands. Then soak your clothes in the bowl one by one. Let them stand for about 30 minutes to absorb the water and softener. Afterward, wring them out. Put them on a flat towel and stretch it out. Roll the towel together with the clothes so it can absorb the water.
Afterward, stretch the clothing slowly with your hands to the width you want and place them on the flat board. In the end, attach the pins to the base of your clothes. Leave them to dry and finish the molding by ironing at the appropriate temperature.

Tip: Regardless of material, clothing may shrink with washing even though you follow the temperature rules. That’s why we recommend buying a slightly larger number of what you normally wear. This rule especially applies to clothes made of cotton and wool.
